How can every­one use their own language in the fu­ture?

Do you want to deepen your understanding of language in general or become an expert in linguistic diversity at a local or global scale? Are you interested in learning how humans perceive the world and process information or how to create artificial systems that resemble language, speech and human cognition? Do you want to know how to use digital methods to study aspects of human life such as history and social development?

In the Master's Programme in Linguistic Diversity and Digital Humanities (Previously: Linguistic Diversity in the Digital Age), you may deepen your understanding of the nature and diversity of human language and the theoretical and digital tools for working with language and speech. You may also focus on digital methods in other fields within humanities or on human cognition and artificial intelligence. You can choose from five study tracks: (1) Cognitive Science, (2) Digital Humanities, (3) General Linguistics, (4) Language Technology or (5) Phonetics. One of them could be just perfect for you!
